4 sessions to capture this special year.

Trust us to keep things simple and easy.

The photos you get from your session are spontaneous, vibrant, and real. We love capturing images that have the power to transport you back to what you were thinking, feeling, and experiencing in the moment we made them together. 

Hello & Co. photos are watermark free. We never put our logo on your family’s faces! There’s no need to sell you extra images or files after the fact. You get all the photos you expect, just the way you need them, so you can share or print as you wish.


01. What should I do to prepare baby for a session?
When baby is fed, clean, and at a happy temperature, we’ll have a great session. It may be helpful to feed, do a diaper change, and dress your baby in the outfit you prefer just before I arrive. But, we’ll have the time to be flexible and take cues from baby. We can capture nursing or diaper change images if you wish. In my experience, whatever baby needs during our time together will add meaning to your unique session.

02. What activities make for a good session?
Great sessions are about the things you do in this life you love. Our REAL approach centers on routines personal to you, environments meaningful to you, and authentic family interactions that capture life as it is really lived. Real life is beautiful, and our client families love to see back in time to the reality they lived when baby was small. We’ll have 1 hour to follow where baby’s life leads — waking up from a nap, having tummy time, nursing or eating, looking at the world inside or outside — there are no rules. At your home, we can identify key fixes — as easy as clearing clutter from a nightstand — that make any space look great. Trust me. There’s no need to worry or stage your entire house. We’re here to make your session beautiful and authentic — and above all, stress-free.

03. What should I have my family wear?
Our goal is to tell your real life story, so come as you are! Because we’ll spend significant time together as you go through everyday activities, costume changes often become a natural part of Baby’s First Year sessions. Sometimes moments we don’t plan — like the struggle to get dressed to go outside — become the most magical aspect of your unique session.
